Funds approved for elections audit

December 25, 2007|From the Associated Press

Following a string of errors at the Merced County elections office, the Board of Supervisors last week approved spending up to $75,000 to hire an attorney to audit elections practices.

Officials say voters have been given the wrong ballots, ballots have been misprinted, and absentee voters have received official ballots before sample ballots.

In one instance, a school board candidate's name was left off the November ballot.
